Retain Criminal Justice Programs Funding

Concerning retention of criminal justice programs funding.
2019 Regular Session
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

Criminal justice programs - cash funds created - transfers. Currently, money appropriated but unspent for the community-based reentry grant program, the crime victims grant program, the justice reinvestment crime prevention grant program, and the justice reinvestment crime prevention small business program (programs) reverts to the general fund at the end of the fiscal year. The act creates cash funds for each of the programs so that money for the programs is appropriated into the cash funds and unspent money is available for spending in future years. At the end of the 2018-19 and 2019-20 fiscal years, unspent money for the programs is transferred to the new cash funds rather than reverting to the general fund.

Currently, the justice reinvestment crime prevention initiative is scheduled for repeal on September 1, 2020. The act extends the repeal date to September 1, 2023.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
